V svojih dvajsetih letih se je Randi predstavljal [[Astrologija|astrolog]] in celo delal enostavne trike. Tako je pod psevdonimom "Zo-ran" nekaj časa pisal astrološko kolumno v kanadskem tabloidu Polnoč, in v njej preprosto premeščal odseke iz časopisnih astroloških člankov in jih naključno prilepil v svoje besedilo.<ref>[[#Randi 1982c|Randi 1982c]], pp. 230–231. Randi reprints two newspaper columns from the ''[[Toronto Telegram|Toronto Evening Telegram]]'' of August 28, 1950, and August 14, 1950, by Wessely Hicks about Randall Zwinge's psychic predictions. The earlier column states that "Mr. Zwinge said he first became aware that he possessed Extra Sensory Perception when he was nine years old."</ref><ref>[[#Randi 1982a|Randi 1982a]], pp. 61–62</ref> V svojih tridesetih je delal v [[Velika Britanija|Veliki Britaniji]], [[Evropa|Evropi]], [[Filipini|filipinskih]] nočnih klubih in po vsej [[Japonska|Japonski]].<ref>{{cite journal |last=Randi |first=James |date=May 19, 2006 |title=Filipino Justice |journal=Swift |type=Newsletter |accessdate=June 15, 2009 |url=http://www.randi.org/jr/2006-05/051906sylvia.html#i13 |archive-url=http://arquivo.pt/wayback/20091007175115/http://www.randi.org/jr/2006-05/051906sylvia.html |url-status=dead |archive-date=October 7, 2009 }}</ref> Takrat je bil priča številnim trikom, ki so bili predstavljeni kot nadnaravni.
